Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer left the field in Game 2 of the series against the Seattle Mariners after a collision.
The Jays led 9–6 in the eighth inning and Jordan Romano tried to get out of a dangerous situation with the bases loaded. He was just one out short, but JP Crawford lifted the ball to center field.
However, the ball landed right in front of Springer, who, while diving to try to grab it, came into contact with his teammate Bo Bichette, who was trying to catch the ball on his own side at home plate. .
Bichette’s right hand delivered against the outfielder’s head and both Jays players remained on the ground and the Mariners took the opportunity to score three points to tie the game 9–9. Bichette was up first, but Springer needed help from the trainers before he could lift the cart off the field.
“I haven’t had a chance to watch the video yet, but I think Bo’s elbow hit George’s shoulder or head,” Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider said. I’m not quite sure. At this point you’re still trying to focus on the rest of the game. ,
Springer hurt his arm in the bottom of the fourth inning when he caught Mitch Haniger’s ball against the fence for the third out.
The Jays jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the game that is still ongoing. Seattle eventually won 10–9 and eliminated Toronto.
